The Houston Rockets need Trevor Ariza to start shooting better

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Need to step up by alleyoop on Monday 28 December 2009 at 6:40 pm

Trevor Ariza has played in 30 games (all starts) this season for the Rockets and he is averaging 38.7 minutes, 16.3 points, 5.7 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 1.8 steals per game. Ariza’s numbers and the team would be better off if he started shooting better from anywhere on the court. Ariza is only hitting 37.5% from the floor, 31.9% from three point range and 65.7% from the free throw line so far this season and it’s just not good enough. If Ariza keeps heaving up bricks at his current rate the Rockets will have no choice but to start cutting back on his minutes.

Tracy McGrady is starting to rub the front office of the Houston Rockets the wrong way

Blogged under Big Rockets News, Bloglockers, Front Page, General by alleyoop on Monday 28 December 2009 at 6:37 pm

Tracy McGrady is finally back but the Rockets want him to take it slow while he wants his starting job back right now. McGrady has played in 6 games (0 starts) for the Rockets this season and he is averaging 7.7 minutes, 3.2 points, 0.8 rebounds and 1.0 assist per game. The Rockets sent him back home before a recent road trip to New York and Cleveland. It seems as if the Rockets would love to trade McGrady but it’s going to be hard to do until he proves that he is healthy.

Houston Rockets 101, Denver Nuggets 111

Blogged under Big Rockets News, Bloglockers, Game recaps, General by Andrew on Thursday 17 December 2009 at 6:56 pm

The Houston Rockets (14-11) hung around with the Denver Nuggets (19-7), but they could not stop Carmelo Anthony.  Anthony got the rim with ease and the Rockets fouled him all night, sending him to the free-throw line 20 times.  Melo hit 19-20 of those free throws, and finished with 38 points, 9 rebounds, and 3 assists.  Aaron Brooks led the Rockets in scoring with 23 points, 7 assists, and 1 rebound.  The Rockets aren’t at their best when Brooks is their leading scorer, so I think Brooks should look to get more guys involved rather than scoring.  They have been easing Tracy McGrady back in, as he played only 8 minutes and went 0-1 one from the field.  I think they are being a little too careful, but McGrady seems to be made of glass so I understand why they are being so careful.  The Rockets really need T-Mac back.
